Lions

SnagglepussSnagglepuss - Silly Shakespearian lion featured as a component series of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon YOGI BEAR/SYN/1961-62. Snagglepuss lives in a cave on Cave Street. He stands upright and wears cuffs, collar and a string tie. His silly lisping voice (provided by Daws Butler) was similar to that of Bert Lahr's portrayal of the Cowardly Lion in the film Wizard of Oz (1939). Snagglepuss' catchphrase is "Heaven's to Murgatroid!"

Whenever Snagglepuss makes a hastily retreat, he declares "Exit--(fill in some remark)--Stage left" (or right). Snagglepuss' main nemesis is the master hunger Major Minor.

Snagglepuss originally appeared as a supporting player on THE HUCKLEBERRY HOUND SHOW/SYN/1958-62 and QUICK DRAW MCGRAW /SYN/1959-62. A few year later, Snagglepuss could be seen with other Hanna-Barbera stars on shows like YOGI'S GANG (1973), SCOOBY'S ALL-STAR LAFF-A LYMPICS (1977-1979), and YOGI'S TREASURE HUNT (1985-1988).

The voice of Snagglepuss was recycled for a Revolutionary War era ghost on the cartoon series THE FUNKY PHANTOM (1971).
